    Walmart & Lowes do not carry the blanks big enough, & they cannot get the code as the keycode box that reads the key senses the diode in the chip & denys them access to the code.

You can go to ebay and get a transporter key for about $10 shipped to your door. Take it to a hardware store to have it keyed or a locksmith if you know a good one. Next follow the instructions that come with the key. I just bought a Venture cheap and it had only one key. The dealers and everyone else want $60 or more.

The chevy dealership can prgram the key. The owners manual may desrcibe a way to program the key without a dealership vivit.

A local or chain (lowe's, walmart, etc.) can cut a key that will unlock the door but it will not be able to start the car without have the chip programed. This is passive security feature.

What is a transponder chip?

You should get a spare key while you still can make a copy of the one you have now.
The chip is in the black plastic part of the key and sends a signal to the security system on the car to allow it to start.
Some locksmiths and the dealer can make you a new key with the correct chip. A key without the chip will not allow the engine to start.
